Fabrizio Romano gives Irons window priority


By Hughie Southon

West Ham still have a striker as the top of their priorities for the next summer transfer market according to ITK source Fabrizio Romano.

No names are being mentioned yet but according to the Italian in his Daily Briefing the Hammers look set to snub the winter market in their bid to find the right front man.

He makes the obvious observation that with Mohamed Kudus now on board they are in absolutely no rush to make moves.

That of course makes total sense given the rapid progress the Ghana international is making at the club having now scored some great goals.

He also looks the perfect player to help develop the team’s pressing policy rather than relying entirely on counter attacking options.

And it may give outside chances for the development of both Divin Mubama and Callum Marshall in first team terms should injuries or suspensions intervene.

However, that would have to be a hopeful rather than optimistic thought given the number of youngsters who have yet to be given their chances.
